History & History Related Items

The Serrano Indians lived in the area during the late 1700's. When a Spanish mission was build in San Bernardino, the Indians came there for instruction and education. Later, in the early 1800's, the mission was secularized and many of these Indians moved back into the mountains. In 1851, the Lujo family, who owned the mission, sold their holdings to the local Mormon settlers. Two of this group, Nathan and Truman Swarthout, homesteaded in Lone Pine Canyon. When the Mormons left the area, they also left for Salt Lake City.
